Dear Friends & Eaters,
During one of my first summer classes in the UK as a teenager, I discovered McVities Digestive cookies. When I talk about “digestive cookies” to my friends in America I get mixed reactions. A couple of days ago, a friend on twitter asked me whether the cookies I was talking about were an aid for digestion or a palate cleanser. On the other hand, if I talk about these cookies to my British or Canadian friends they always know what I am talking about and are crazy about these cookies. The equation below represents the concept better than anything else
Digestive cookies don’t actually aid digestion but they contain baking soda, hence the name. This homemade version also contains a lot of heart healthy fiber and they might actually be a little more “digestive” than the regular store bought cookie . And they are also strangely addictive so make sure not to eat the all batch at once, especially if you have a date, job interview or brunch with the in-laws.
